Teen Summit to help students

By Julia Latchana, Section Editor

Teen Summit, also known as the Peer Counseling Summit, was held Sept. 14 in the auditorium bringing together peer counselors from middle and high schools across the county to bring awareness to normal teen issues.

“It is important because it helps the peer counselors learn skills that can be used to help the students,” peer counseling teacher Lafaris Dooling said.

The summit began with a meditation presentation before splitting up into breakout sessions which went over programs that the schools should implement.

“We brainstormed different ice breakers and events to plan so that no one at school feels alone,” senior Paris King said.

One of the programs was Sandy Hook Promise, which encourages students to notice those isolated and “just say hello.” Another program is the Courageous Conversation, which is meant to get students to start talking about issues that normally aren’t talked about, like suicide and mental illness.

The summit also urged schools to implement the HOPE program, which is already a club at our school that is meant to help students overcome problems and helps with suicide prevention. The summit also wants schools to implement Blueapple Poetry, a network founded by the Jason Taylor Foundation that shows students how to express themselves through poetry.

“It’s important because it teaches people how to cope with things and it goes over a lot of issues teens go through today,” King said.

Sophomore Alfonse Mazzarella poses for his school photo in the auditorium Aug. 29. This photo was be used on his school ID.

School photos took place in the auditorium for the first time this past Wednesday and Thursday, Aug. 29 and 30.

“[In the past] Fox-Mar had to break down their equipment and set up again after the first day because of sports,” current yearbook advisor Dr. Andrew Shipe said.

Fox-Mar employees also added that the gym is very open and harder to keep the students in one place. However, by using the auditorium instead of the gym, there is less space available to take photos.

“It will be a little tight,” Shipe said.

This year, the school distributed lanyards free of charge in addition to hole punching the ID cards. The school began enforcing the wearing of IDs on Sept. 4.

Photo retake day will be on Oct. 2.
